The recent comments on seagulls (see coments that developed from my last entry) reminded me that although I have just created a wallpaper with seagulls gracefully soaring in the air, they can be very mean. Very.
Last year whilst sitting on the sea wall at St Ives munching a piece of pizza, I was ruthlessly attacked by one as it attempted to snatch my lunch from my hand. They were divebombing all and sundry and the only way we could eat lunch in piece was for one of us to keep guard while the other ate. It was pretty big and heavy and almost knocked me over. Big, and very greedy.
